Ahmed Fatfat

Lebanese politician Dr. Ahmed Fatfat.

Lebanese politician Dr. Ahmed Fatfat, former minister of youth and sports, said in a July 4 interview on MTV (Lebanon) that all the militias in his country—first and foremost Hezbollah—should be dismantled in accordance with the Taif Agreement and the Lebanese constitution.

He said that in his view, Hezbollah has carried out acts of terrorism and is Lebanon’s main problem.

He added that it is preventing any reforms in the country from taking place.

Furthermore, he said, Hezbollah is not a legitimate political party; that it is occupying Lebanon and its political decision-making process; that it believes in Iran’s Rule of Jurisprudence, rather than the Lebanese Constitution; and that its leader, Hassan Nasrallah, is effectively the person ruling Lebanon.

Born to one of the biggest families in Danniyeh, Fatfat holds a degree in medicine.
